Damn! I have been found out. I had my whole school order thousands of copies to use as Reading Primers in the Elementary school. If I recall, it went something like this:
See Dick run.
See Jane run.
See Dick and Jane's dog, Mr. Slugbelch.
See Mr. Slugbelch?
See the radar antenna strapped to his back?
Talk, Mr. Slugbelch, talk.
See the dog talk?
Dog says, "Yeah."
See Dick run up a hill.
See Jane follow.
See Dick and Jane fondle a squid.
See Dick and Jane cup the furry bees.
See Dick laugh!
See Jane smile!
Laugh, Dick, Laugh!
Smile Jane, Smile!
See Dick and Jane suddenly
transmogrify into a vasty mass of squirming, pulpy flesh covered with
tiny feathery vents and oozing tentacles and a vaguely horrible erotic,
um, appendage that sort of *whirls,* twitches in the air as if to say,
"Mr. Slugbelch! Mr. Slugbelch! The Lions are on fire again!"
